Country Profile: Ukraine


 Ukraine

Ukraine is a dynamic country of 46 million people of mainly Slavic composition. Ukrainian is the official language of Ukraine, but Russian is also widely spoken particularly in the Eastern part of the nation. The dominant religion in the country is Eastern Orthodox Christianity,  which has strongly influenced Ukrainian architecture and culture.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine has been one of the Slavic nations that has been most receptive to the gospel.  In the early 1990’s the church grew rapidly with many Ukrainian missionaries being sent went into other Russian speaking nations.  At one point, some estimate that more than 50% of all the pastors in Russia were from Ukraine.

NLI has been working in Ukraine since 2003.  We have been involved in training leaders through Leadership Conferences and also have assisted 25 church plants throughout many of the eastern regions of Ukraine and Crimea.  In Crimea, we are still actively involved in a church planting project and support some church planters which are focusing on reaching Tatars, a Muslim group.
